    Hi DeeB, I also would suggest to find an artist’s considering not only the budget. First of all you should look at the portfolio and make sure that the style is what you are looking for Inland Empire Bridal Hair . It’s your wedding day and everything should be perfect, as you wished before. Finally you don’t get married everyday😊 The cheaper way is not always the best one.

    Hello!

    I am going with a more experienced salon and I'll be paying 195$ per service and 165$ for the trial. For myself with tip, it'll probably cost $600. Bridesmaids' hair and makeup equals $270 (135$ per service), so approximately 300$ with tip. It really depends on how much experience they have and what kind of look you're going for. I booked a studio because I'm having a winter wedding and wanted to ensure they had back-up artists available. The cheapest makeup artist I found was $100 (per service) but she worked alone. I'm from Toronto though, which is probably why the prices are higher.

    Hi Dee,
    Look at the artist’s portfolio to make sure their style fits with what you are bc looking for. Also the types/brands of products being used. You want to make sure it is high quality products that will last all day/night. As well as their sanitary procedures especially now with everything going on. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Yes! Just get quotes from multiple makeup artists (there were some much higher). I also went with a makeup artist recommended by another vendor!!

    Hi Sandra,
    It is so funny you mentioned that the cheaper route isn't always the best route. My fiance and I were deciding which photography to choose, and he told me the same thing when I suggested the cheaper one to stay within budget. Also, I am happy to receive any helpful tips when looking for a makeup artist.

    For my upcoming wedding I'm paying 225 for myself and 90 for my MOH. Both come with trials as well. But it might be different pricing in every province

    Hi Dee,

    Prices tend to vary quite a bit but I would say it is around the $200 mark to include the trial. Also, keep in mind that cheaper is not always the best route, sometimes it is better to spend a bit more on a more experienced makeup artist. Let me know if would like me to send you my pricing or if you have any questions in regards in what to look for in a makeup artist.

    Hey! Standard pricing will vary by region, how established the makeup artist is, and so on. Some packages also include a trial which, although very worthwhile, will jack the price up a bit. And you should also factor in a tip. To give you an idea, my MUA quoted me $180, which includes day-of makeup, a trial, and lashes. Add a 20% tip and it’ll be $215ish. However, I’m in Atlantic Canada and it’s my sense that makeup costs can be a little more steep in other parts of the country.


    As a starting point, I would allot a couple hundred dollars, particularly if you want a trial. But it’s never too early to start reaching out to artists in your area for a quote! That way you can really fine tune the budget. Good luck!
